  2. Not Diagnosed Yet?
    Hi, I'll try to keep this brief, but I have a few concerns surrounding some bloodwork my rheumatologist ordered.

  9. Not Diagnosed Yet?
    I am surprised (and so is my rheumatologist) that all of my bloodwork recently came back normal (ANA, etc as well as a number of other things to rule them out, like the heps).
